​Ottawa's CityFolk Announces 2019 Marvest Lineup

​Ottawa's CityFolk Announces 2019 Marvest Lineup
Ottawa is only a few weeks away from the 2019 edition of CityFolk, and organizers have now lifted the curtain on this year's programming for offshoot series Marvest.

Running concurrently alongside CityFolk programming, Marvest will put the spotlight on over 70 artists from the Ottawa area and beyond. All performances are free of charge and will be held in non-traditional venues in the city's Glebe neighbourhood.

For the 2019 edition, organizers have added a free shuttle for festivalgoers dubbed the "Magic Marvest Bus." The shuttle will provide transportation — and onboard live music — along Bank Street throughout the festival.

Marvest organizers have also lined up a series of free special presentations alongside local artist showcases. Taking place September 14 at Fourth Avenue Baptist Church, the series will feature "Songwriting 101" with Eleni Mandell, "Beautiful Scars - Literary Recital" with Lee Harvey Osmond's Tom Wilson, and "SNRK: Identity and Process in 3 Albums" with Snotty Nose Rez Kids.

Marvest 2019 will run September 13 and 14. A complete list of acts set to play can be found below, listed in alphabetical order. A complete schedule can be found here.

The 2019 edition of CityFolk will run from September 12 to 15 and will feature Robert Plant and the Sensational Space Shifters, Leon Bridges, the Strumbellas and more.
